The food was okay, but personnel was rude, which ruin the good moode. The whole place was reserved and when people where coming, personnel just told them to go away, not kindly explaining that they can make resevations for another day.

Don't see what all the hype is all about... This is like the slightly souped up local version of every other "mehana" in every other small to medium size Bulgarian city. The food itself was nothing exceptional, on the contrary - it was rubbery, tasteless, and most definitively not homemade... Stay away from the grilled red peppers (straight out of... More
